AydannStreams has revealed that even smaller Twitch streamers can be the victim of harassment regardless of their gender. 

On September 11, Aydann exposed a female viewer for going out of her way to target his girlfriend in what appears to be an extreme act of jealousy. 

For a smaller stream, the chat can be a more intimate experience with the interactions between the streamer and his or her viewers being frequent. And while some relationships between the streamer and viewers can grow, they can also take a dark turn.

Eventually, after a female viewers grew a little too close to Aydann and sent some hurtful messages to his girlfriend, the streamer snapped. 

According to Aydann, a few viewer started DMing him asking if he had a girlfriend. When he said yes and revealed who it was in his chat, she spent every stream trying to harass her. 

“You’ve been targeting my girlfriend since you came in here. I don’t want to sound like a dick, but you’re constantly trying to roast her, say she’s rude, ask if she done makeup well” Aydann began. “Dude, I don’t understand why. And you even DM’d her. Don’t DM my girlfriend.” 

But for his part, despite clearly upset, the upstart entertainer did have some advice for the overly-invested fan. 

aydannstreams/InstagramAydannStreams had enough of the harassment from a female viewer.

“Don’t go after people’s relationships. Enjoy the content that they create. Don’t be the person that comes in all the time and be like ‘do they love you enough? Are they taking care of you enough? This that’. No. Nuh.” 

The content creator went on to explain in the replies that the female viewer had been banned and he posted the video to show that this kind of thing happens to male streamers too, just not as often. 

A lot of people in the comments, including females, praised Aydann for how he handled the situation. One, a mother of two boys, said she wanted to break the stigma that harassment only happens to women. 

Aydann then revealed that this normally happens once or twice a month and that he recieved pictures he never asked for from women who found his personal Facebook account. 

It just goes to show that everyone can find themselves in unwanted situations.

Twitch bot finds PS5s and Xbox Series Xs in-stock so you don’t have to

A popular new Twitch bot is doing all the legwork to help gamers find out what stores have PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stock.

Gamers have been hard-pressed to find a next-gen console for themselves or loved ones as the Christmas season approaches. It seems like almost everywhere is sold out, leaving only scalpers who have been selling units for insane markups.

Now, a new Twitch bot has entered the fray and is helping anyone who can’t keep up with the constant refreshing know when they can get their hands on Sony or Microsoft’s new console.

Viewers can simply go to the Twitch channel and watch live as the bot searches through various sites to find inventory. The bot will actively check through Walmart, Amazon, Best Buy, and more and state whether they’re out of stock or have consoles in.

As a nice little bonus, the channel even says when the last “drop” was. At the time of publishing, the last store to get both consoles in stock was Walmart at 9:30 PM EST on November 25.

Users can also use the !local command to check any store stock near them.

According to Polygon, the channel is run by Cam Ritz and uses a program called streetmerchant that does the monitoring.

The program’s features page state that it “scrapes multiple websites for patterns of being stocked via API and Chromium.”

Ritz claims that so far, the bot has helped viewers actually find consoles – with a few nabbing Series Xs from GameStop and Sam’s Club.

Unfortunately, for most viewers, watching the stream will result in a near-endless red wave of OUT OF STOCK notifications, further cementing just how difficult it is to find a console this year.

As the days continue and the Christmas season approaches, keeping this channel open may be a great tool if you’re actively still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X. Or for those who have managed to already snag a console, it can serve as a reminder of just how difficult it can be.
